Less than three hours from Charlotte is the ski resort town of Beech Mountain. At an elevation of 5,506 feet, Beech Mountain is Eastern America's Highest Town.
Beech Mountain is unique because it combines a town and ski resort in one location. Slopeside lodging is plentiful, while restaurants, shops and nightlife are within walking distance. The ski resort features 15 runs and NC's only high-speed, detachable chairlift. There's also an Alpine Village at the base of the slopes that includes ice skating, eateries, a micro brewery and the Beech Tree Bar & Grill. New this year at the summit is "5,506" - a skybar offering food & beverage as you step off the chairlift.
